Title: Clown Countdown (from Drive-In Movie Ads)
Description: Short countdown clips used in between ad films during a drive-in intermission keeping customers updated when the next feature would start. This clown theme series are polarized luminance key films that were colorized. I especially like the creepy clown on the first clip. The countdown is incomplete and only has 10 7 5 and 2 minutes. No modifications have been made to the clips other than cropping.
This clip is from a compilation of drive-in intermission films found here on Internet Archives in the Drive-In Movie Ads section. Most are color but there are a few black & whites because of their quality or uniqueness.
PLEASE NOTE: These clips have been modified from the originals. They have been carefully cropped to remove excess black frame while preserving as much of the actual image as possible. I've adjusted the brightness/contrast, and color correction to the best of my ability. Magenta tinted films were especially difficult. These clips are also louder than the originals. Volume has been increased. In some cases the audio track was separated and remixed in an audio editor to enhance the sound. The enhanced audio files are available for upload if requested.
